Reasons for Decision

1On 27 October 2017 the appellant lodged a Notice of Appeal to the Public Service Appeal Board in which he contests the respondent’s decision to terminate his employment on 2 October 2017 and seeks reinstatement.

2It now transpires that the appellant has been charged by the Western Australian Police Service with a criminal offence (or offences) arising out of the matter in relation to which the respondent terminated the appellant’s employment.

3The appellant now seeks a stay of these proceedings until such time as the criminal charge (or charges) relating to the matter have been resolved at first instance.

4That is, the appellant seeks a stay of these proceedings until the criminal charge (or charges) have been determined following a trial or plea.

5While the Board notes that it has a legislative duty upon it to resolve matters expeditiously, and understands that the respondent’s preference is that the matter be heard expeditiously, the Board takes the view that an accused person’s right to silence in a criminal jurisdiction is an important one and where the person seeking a remedy from the Board wishes to delay the seeking of that remedy to preserve the right that is to be given great weight.

6The respondent did not point to any particular prejudice to it that would, or might, result from the present proceedings being stayed and, commendably and sensibly, its opposition to the stay was not strong.

7The present appeal will be stayed pending further communication from the parties in relation to the resolution of the criminal matter (or matters).
